It can seem like the most stressful part of moving to pack your things and go through the moving day, but often it can be even more stressful to unpack your boxes just to find objects that broke during the move. You have to search for substitute products now or lament the loss of those fragile, priceless keepsakes.

Here are the most frequently damaged items and what you can do to secure them. The easiest way to make unpacking in your new house a good experience is to reduce the chance of harm to your belongings.

 

The Arts

Art is a costly casualty of moving. Stretched canvases, glass, and frames for restoration, and original paintings are best left to talented artists. It doesn't take much to over-stretch a canvas or break the protective glass on a custom frame, even when treated carefully. Take every precaution possible if you need to move your artwork yourself, including:

Construction of custom moving crates for large items. With the painting carefully wrapped in fleece and packed in foam, you would want to transport large paintings and canvases in crates made from rough lumber. To avoid cracking, tape glass in an "X" shape to help prevent breaking.

Use boxes that allow smaller parts to fit upright and snugly. Make sure the art is packed in a way that avoids shifting about or dropping forward. Placing on frames corner protectors. To avoid dust or staining, cover manageable bits in plain paper.

To avoid surface damage, wrap sculptures and ornate frames in shrink wrap. However, it is strongly recommended that you rely on professionals to pass art, especially if art has a high monetary value.

 

Glass Glass Glass

You would expect glassware, of course, to be at the top of the list. Nevertheless, while homeowners realize that glass is one of the most difficult things to transport, they nevertheless mistakenly pack it incorrectly. 

 

Hire experienced packers

You don't have to leave all of the things at home to skilled packers, but hiring a pro will save you a lot of time for difficult and breakable items. It takes time to correctly pack glass, and sometimes even special products are needed. The materials and experience needed to keep your glassware secure can be given by a skilled packer.

 

Electronics 

You send the foam and cardboard boxes to the curb or for recycling after unboxing your machine, printer, or TV for the first time. But for preventing damage to your devices, these boxes are very useful. Sometimes these electronics are heavy, awkward in size or form, and fragile enough that they never recover from the accident if they are dropped. You can mitigate harm by providing the original packaging.

Invest in packaging materials for moving such as shrink wrap, and inflatable plastic bags if you don't have the original boxes to prevent these products from damage.

Use Smaller Boxes 

If you want to pack on your own, choosing a package that is compact enough to be comfortably carried by one person with no need for awkward handling is the first step to keeping your glass secure. Too big a box means you're going to fill it with too much glassware, which is heavy in large quantities. Doing so often raises the possibility of the box being dropped.

 

Remember to mark "fragile" and "this way up" boxes so that the movers know how to treat them carefully.

 

Pack Just Right

With packing glassware, there are two common mistakes: packing to lose and packing too close. The goods will move around too much in the box when packed too loose, raising the risk of breakage. The pressure of the pieces against each other may be too intense when packed too close, causing cracking if the box is put under stress, such as when it is stacked with other boxes.

It should be packed snugly next to its fellows as a compromise after each glass piece is wrapped, but after they are packed in the package, you should be able to get a finger between the pieces.

 

Sports Equipments

Specialized equipment is also huge, voluminous, and easy to damage for sports. One reason it breaks is that as an afterthought, it is always packed. You might literally throw a pair of skis over the top of the moving load, for instance, only to have them move and get badly scratched during transit.

By making sure you have the right carrying cases for the equipment before moving day a bag for skis, a zipper case for a tennis racket, or a case for golf clubs, you can prevent harm to sports equipment. It should all be assured.


If possible, larger objects such as nets and treadmills should be totally disassembled with the parts sealed inboxes. Finally, make sure you move it separately from the main load for fragile equipment like bikes.

These are just a few of the things that without proper planning and professional support can easily get affected. Consult our Xfinity Moving Specialist at 844-740-6152 about packing and loading fragile products for the best results.
